You are certainly correct that this survey does not meet scientific 
criteria, but more like the media questions that provide people with an 
outlet to express feelings.  Being relatively easy to do, however, it 
will be interesting to see how many Radsafe folks fool with it and how 
they are disposed. I assume that all participants are well aware of the 
anecdotal nature of the whole idea. Who knows, the ionized activists 
might later reference the the Great 2005 Radiation Safety List LNT 
Survey!         <g>
